Accent Arts has the best art supplies to be found. The staff are all working artists. Some are still college-aged, others are retired professionals, others are in the emerging artists.
I always find what I need and get the bext advice, especially from the owner, Gil.

Accent Arts has the rudest and least helpful staff I've had the misfortune to encounter for a very long time. I vowed never to return about a year ago, but I thought that I could find a replacement mat for a frame easily. After waiting until the self-absorbed staff at the register finished whatever it was they were doing, I asked if they could find a mat for me. The young man asked me the size (I had the old mat in my hand at the time), made me measure it on a tape on the counter and then said they didn't have anything. Do they really want to chase customers away?

Great resource for any kind of art - oil, acrylic, pastels, color pencils, water color. Knowledgeable staff and helpful. The choices are very good. Some brushes are expensive for beginners. I have not tried their framing services.

They have a great array of offerings covering everything from professional artists supplies to kids arts and crafts stuff. Prices are not cheap, but the staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

This is the only store around that carries Aquabee drawing paper, in several different sizes. This paper has a fantastically good texture and weight, and is my absolute favorite for drawing. The store is small, but they manage to stock an amazingly wide array of really high quality as well as student grade art supplies. In the back in the corner they have discontinued and damaged papers, paints and supplies, which sometimes can be great deals. However, if you are looking for cheap art supplies, this is not the place to find it, after all this is Palo Alto. The store is well connected with the local art community and always offers interesting and current fliers on loacl art lesson oppourtunities and events, which I like. The only minus about the store, is that if they special order something for you it takes a very long time to come in and then when you go to pick it up they usually can't find it.
